There is a common problem when you buy a new mobile is copy all (i.e 50 or 100 more) contacts from old mobile to new mobile. This post show you how to do it very easy manner.

How to transfer Contact:

This process is depends on your mobile suuport. There are four options, i will discuss most popualr mobile platform like Android, iPhone, Blackberry etc.

  1. SIM based transfer (From the SIM card)

  2. Bluetooth based transfer

  3. Transfer via computer (Cable based)

  4. Transfer via Memory card (SD card)

SIM based transfer:

If your number of contacts from the old phone memory in very small and only the contact or your not having any email or any other special contacts you can use SIM based transfer.

Transfer via Computer:

For this step you need a PC and Cables. Here i’m using Nokia PC Suite for transfer contacts.

First install Nokia PC suite om your computer. And connect your old Nokia phone to your computer with help of USB cables. Please wait untill your computer recognize your device, And follw the below instructions.

  • Go to Tools tab and click on the icon of Nokia PC Suite.

  • Export the contacts in VCF format.

  • Copy them in SD card.

  • Now your Andriod phone Go to the Dialer > Contact > Menu > More > Import / Export From SD card and Press OK.

Transfer via Memory card:

It is similar to previous method. But here no need of computers and cables. Simply follow the below steps

Setting > Synch And Backup > Create BackUp

The backup is stored in to your SD card. Import into android mobile as given above.
